Summary

This volume investigates the miraculous as a counter-intuitive concept that violates the rules of the acquired semantic knowledge-system. The most crucial question addressed is how one should approach ancient narratives that display such a concept. Specifically, the present essays explore how and when certain events and phenomena are perceived as miracles and draws on the process of witnessing and processing an extraordinary experience.
